While staff, faculty and students can receive the vaccine through UCLA, our supplies are limited. Members of the Bruin community may find they’re able to schedule a vaccination more quickly through the state, a local county public health agency, a local pharmacy or the city of Los Angeles. UCLA is encouraging all those eligible to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity, wherever they can.
- The fastest option may be to book an appointment through California’s My Turn portal, which provides information in eight languages and allows residents throughout the state to schedule a vaccination close to where they live. You can also access the state’s COVID-19 vaccination hotline at 833-4CA-4ALL (Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–8 p.m., and Saturday–Sunday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.).
- In addition, UCLA employees and students who live in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County and Ventura County can continue to check their local public health department for vaccine availability. Residents of the city of Los Angeles can also book appointments through carbonhealth.com.
- Employees who are not currently residing in California should check their local health department or visit the Vaccine Finder website to schedule a vaccination.
- Employees can also learn how their UC health plans are handling vaccinations by visiting the vaccine websites of Anthem, Health Net, Kaiser Permanente and UnitedHealthcare or by contacting their primary care provider.
International students are encouraged to get vaccinated at the earliest possible opportunity in their home countries.
Only vaccines that have been granted emergency use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization meet the university’s vaccine requirement. You can follow the status of vaccines through the WHO EUL/PQ evaluation process.Vaccine Page
